Breakfast @ Three Mills Bakery

While holidaying in Japan, I read about Three Mills Bakery opening up in Majura Park. Three Mills Bakery is the spillover effect from the increased demand of baked goods from A Baker in New Acton. All baking operations have moved from A Baker’s basement to the new site near the airport. The week I came […] Read more…

Cook your own steak @ The Kingston Hotel

I’ve been in Canberra for over 8 years now, and only made my first visit to the Kingston Hotel, lovingly known as the Kingo, a couple of months ago. I remember my friends talking about cooking their own cheap steaks years ago but never felt inspired to try it out myself. I’d rather pay for […] Read more…

Breakfast @ Coffee Lab

I was told that the Coffee Lab in Civic had started doing all day breakfast and since I pass by regularly, I had a peek at the menu. Prices are decent for the city ranging from $7-17. A few weeks ago, I met up with a friend for breakfast before work one weekday morning to […] Read more…

Dumplings @ Yat Bun Tong

Found this old post that I never got around to publishing! I’d been eagerly stalking the construction of Yat Bun Tong in Braddon when I read that it would be a new dumpling house. It opened a few months ago and I headed over there with some work colleagues for lunch. Upon entering, I got […] Read more…

Brunch @ Urban Pantry

Urban Pantry in Manuka went through some renovations late last year with a new look restaurant and menu. The outside patio that used to be covered by plastic blinds has been turned into an official deck attached to the eatery. With a wall knocked down, the space has really opened up. I had made a […] Read more…

Burgers @ Brodburger

In its early days, Brodburger started off in a bright red food van stationed at Bowen Park in Barton/Kingston. Locals came from all over the Canberra region just for its burgers. The queue was notorious – at least a 1 hour wait for the best burgers in Canberra. Fast forward a few years and Brodburger […] Read more…

Pizza @ Pizza Artigiana

*I was invited to dine as a guest, however all opinions are my own. I was contacted by Silvio, one of the owners of Pizza Artigiana in Macquarie, to come try their pizzas. The small eatery is tucked away behind the Jamison shops and opened in August 2015. Owning a pizzeria had been a passion […] Read more…

Lunch @ Bicicletta

I hadn’t been back to Bicicletta in years, and caught up with a friend a few months ago for lunch. I’m glad they offered an undercover outdoor area as it was one of the hotter summer days in Canberra. For lunch, Bicicletta offer pastas, pizzas, salads and some antipasti plates. The dinner menu is more […] Read more…

Dinner @ Jade Dumpling Noodle House

Located in Gungahlin, the Jade Dumpling Noodle House is a bit of a drive for me but I am trying to dine at more North-side eateries. J and I drove there the night that Canberra had all of that constant flickering lightning – a bit scary but we managed to park undercover. I was excited […] Read more…
